State regulations and taxes are the problem. The people who can afford to build apartments are big money. Reduce zoning regulations, property taxes and get rid of Urban Growth Boundaries to expand land use and create competition. Then rents would go down. Government over reach is the problem period.

There also should be no such thing as Vacation Rentals... JUST FOR RENT Signs.

We moved to Bend, after our town of Paradise, ca. Burned down to buy a home and got priced out immediately! We are now "Apartment Dwellers", that feel somewhat without a stake in this "Great Community!"

It's due to greed. When Bend was still Bend the rents were fair.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

I agree with commissioner Patti Adair - there are other alternatives.

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
